Can I get the alley paved next to my property?
If the alley belongs to the city, there is the possibility that it can be paved. The resident must obtain a petition from the City Clerk's Office.

According to City Ordinance, public improvements such as street construction can be initiated by petitions signed by at least 50% of property owners. If ordered for construction, property owners would be assessed for their share of the construction cost.
